Film Screening of “Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound”

September 15, 2019 @ 7:00 pm

Raw Art Works & The Lynn English TV Production Program, inassociation with the Lynn Auditorium invite you to a fundraiser and special screening of MAKING WAVES – The Art of Cinematic Sound. *All ticket sales will be donated to Raw Art Works & Lynn English TV Production Program  Sunday, September 15th, 2019 7 – 9:30 p.m. Making Waves: The Art ofCinematic Sound reveals the hidden power of sound in cinema – and ourlives. Through film clips, interviews and verité footage, the film captures the history, impact and creative process of this overlooked art formthrough the insights and stories of legendary directors such as George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, David Lynch, Barbra Streisand, Ang Lee, Christopher Nolan, Sofia Coppola and Ryan Coogler, and the sound men and womenwith whom they collaborate. Few have “ears to hear” or comprehend theemotional storytelling impact sound plays in so-called visual media. Francis Ford Coppola and George Lucas have both declared that “sound is 50%of the movie” with Spielberg saying “our ears lead our eyes to where the story lives.” In Making Waves, we see and hear from the key players of sound design – including multi-Oscar winners Walter Murch (Apocalypse Now), Ben Burtt (Star Wars) and Gary Rydstrom (Saving Private Ryan)– who, in pursuing their art and desire to push the medium, are the very people who will go down in the history of cinema as developing sound into the immersive storytelling force it is today. Audiences will discover many unsung collaborators for the key creative artists they are, in a domain that has for too long been characterized as “technical.”
